Field judge blocks out tlie nearest tackier -or was it clipping? If the officials call 'cm-and play too-what kind of a game is that? You wouldn't stand for thnt sort of thing on a football field-but it is happening every clay in the electric light and power business. Government not only regulates. Hie'electric companies-but is in competition with them at the same timel 'Hie catch is Hint government sets up two different sets of rules. The government's electric agencies pay little or no interest on the money they borrow, and pay no Federal taxes-but electric companies do, and expect to. When governmcnl-in-thc-power-busiucss can't make, ends meet-it gets a handout of tax money from the U. S. Treasury. Who foots the bill? American taxpayers — of whom you arc one. H government can get into the light and power • business this way-it can get into every olJier bus/ness the same way. In sixty-odd years, the self-supporting electric companies have built for America the most and the best electric service in the world. While costs of everything else are way up (including the costs of making and delivering electricity) electric service is still the best bargain in the American family's budget... it docs so much, and yet it costs so little. . This is a good record for the thousands of people who work in power companies, and for the millions of people who invest savings in them. Don't you think tllcse mci'i and women deserve a fair break? Hie answer is yours to make, for government money is your money. ' Ark-Mo Power Co
